Holiday= Leisure time away from work devoted to rest or pleasure: ‘We took a short holiday in Goa.’

Speakers of British English use (be/go) on holiday, (return/get back) from holiday (WITHOUT -s): ‘I met her while I was on holiday in Switzerland.’ ‘We’re supposed to be going on holiday with them.’

The plural form holidays is usually used with the/my/your etc.: ‘Where are you going for your holiday/s this year?’ ‘During the long summer holiday/s some students get a part-time job.’
